Question about Skype IM

1 Answer

Others cannot see me... Sometimes

Hi,  When I Skype others I can always see them.  Sometimes they can't see me.  I have confirmed I am sending the video, so I am not sure why this happens periodically.  Does it have something to do with my internet connection or broadband traffic? Many Thanks, Scott

Scan your computer and see if there's any virus on it
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

or check for trojan or malwares, or spyware
http://www.safer-networking.org/

see if your computer and os can satisfy the requirements of skype:

  • System requirements
  • PC running Windows 2000, XP or Vista. (Windows 2000 users require DirectX 9.0 for video calls).
  • Internet connection – broadband is best (GPRS is not supported for voice calls).
  • Speakers and microphone – built-in or separate.
  • For voice and video calls we recommend a computer with at least a 1GHz processor, 256 MB RAM and of course a webcam.
  • ForHigh Quality Video calls you will need a highquality video webcam andsoftware, a dual-core processor computer and afast broadbandconnection (384 kbps).

On Skype How to Remove Contacts


The following was taken from: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA421/how-do-i-organize-my-contacts-in-skype-for-windows-desktop#Remove

Removing a contact

When you remove someone from your contact list, you'll always appear offline to each other but you'll still be able to contact each other. To stop someone from contacting you, you'll need to block them.
To remove a contact from your contact list:
  1. Sign in to Skype.
  2. In your contact list, find the contact you want to remove. Right-click the contact name and select Remove from Contacts. Then confirm by clicking Remove.
  3. The contact is removed from your contact list but will still appear in the Recent tab with a question mark. Click the contact name to see the options in the main window: Add to Contacts, Ignore or Block.

MIC NOT WORKING i CAN SEE AND HEAR OTHERS THEY CAN SEE ME BUT CANNOT HEAR ME


Check your sound preferences by double clicking the speaker icon in the corner of the monitor first. Make sure it's working there, it's in the Input Tab. Then when you are sure it's working there, go into Skype preferences and change your mic input to the appropriate mic input, and then use the Test Call to check your microphone settings to see if they work, if you hear yourself then others will be able to hear you. I've gotten Skype to work with Windows and now in Linux too.

How do i turn off the 'remember me' facility so that others using the same pc will need the password? I can't find a setting for it anywhere! help!!


Hi!

When you first boot up Skype, if it logs you in automatically, hit the Log Off button.

On the log in screen, you have the option to "Sign me in when Skype Starts". Uncheck this.

From now on, people will need to enter a password to log into Skype.

Good Luck!

I have skype also, Sometimes virus gets in your computer, Try to run a virus scan first, Also try Adware its free from Lavasoft.com to clear out any adware slowing computer down, If that does not work go to run and remove programs and delete Skype and go to skype.com and redownload the Skype application. It will not mess your account up. Good Luck
